Heritage Lottery Fund – Wales

15 minute Heritage (Round 2)

The aim of this grant programme is to support capital projects in Wales that:

  • help to connect communities with the heritage on their doorstep
  • deliver tangible outputs and benefits for local people

This programme is jointly funded by Cadw ‒ the historic environment service of the Welsh Government ‒ and The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

15-Minute Heritage Grants are an invitation to share and explore the heritage on your doorstep and to celebrate the uniqueness of your local area and its diverse communities. Through sharing stories about the everyday places around us and finding out about the past, we strengthen our connections with the community around us and create a greater sense of place, community and belonging.

Every corner of Wales has been made and shaped by the many people who have lived and worked there. Their legacy in the community is our heritage today.

  • projects delivered in Wales only
  • the majority of the grant should be spent on capital related costs (minor repair and upgrading costs; small-scale physical works; purchase of equipment, etc)


Grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 for capital projects in Wales that will encourage engagement with local heritage.
